Beginning in 2000, DBMS has collaborated with Crossroads for Kids to provide a tuition-free on-the-water program for at-risk, urban youth. The program, now called Maritime Adventures, is geared for youth attending Camp Wing in Duxbury. Since it’s inception, Maritime Adventures has served over 200 middle school aged campers during each 8-week season.
Participating in maritime activities allows campers to learn new skills as well as teach them how important teamwork and a positive attitude are in accomplishing goals- on and off the water. Each camper involved with Maritime Adventures participated in five to seven 2.5-hour session of on-the-water activities.
DBMS does not charge the students of Camp Wing for the program and must raise the funds needed to cover operating and capital costs. For more information regarding camper eligibility and program specifics, or making a donation to Maritime Adventures please contact DBMS.
